Plant stuff for the survey comprised of 174 landraces of Rice ( Oryza sativa L. ) collected from Gene Bank, Institute of Agricultural Biotechnology and Genetic Resources ( IABGR ) , National Agricultural Research Center ( NARC ) Islamabad, which were acquired from assorted parts of the state that represent a broad ecological fluctuation from dry mountains to water plains.. The field work was carried out during May, 2006 to January, 2007 and May, 2007 to January, 2008 under field conditions at Institute of Agricultural Biotechnology and Genetic Resources ( IABGR ) , National Agricultural Research Center ( NARC ) Islamabad.
All the experimental accessions ( Appendix 1 ) of Oryza sativa were foremost planted in a little field for nursery growth ( Fig 2.1 ) . The seeds were sown in the pots for raising baby’s room at the terminal of May during both old ages and seedlings were transplanted into the field in an augmented design after one month of growing. Each cultivar every bit good as germplasm accession was planted in a three-row secret plan of four metres length with a spacing of 20cm ten 20cm. One seedling was transplanted per hill and the inter-plot spacing was kept 40cm. Each experimental unit consisted of 60 workss, while five workss were selected at random from the cardinal row for entering observations as reported by Satoh et Al. ( 1990c, vitamin D, vitamin E, and degree Fahrenheit ) . The average values of each character for each entry were used for statistical analysis harmonizing to Adair et Al. ( 1973 ) . Recommended cultural patterns for rice rating were carried out from transfering till crop of the harvest to acquire healthy and vigorous harvest. Proper H2O intervention was applied to avoid H2O emphasis, flooded irrigation was continued after every 15 yearss till adulthood of harvest. Experimental field received two hoeings, one during nursery organ transplant and other after one month. Fungicide Capton was sprayed twice to salvage the harvest from fungous infections.

2.1.1: Agro-morphological Word picture
All the cultivars were characterized for 18 quantitative and 9 qualitative traits from blooming till adulthood and crop of the harvest during both old ages. Traits choice and measuring techniques were based on IRRI Standard Evaluation System of Rice ( Table 2.1 ) . Quantitative traits included yearss to 50 % blossoming, yearss to adulthood, leaf length, foliage breadth, entire and productive tillers per works, works tallness, panicle length, figure of subdivisions per panicle, seed scene ( % ) , grain output per works, straw output per works, harvest index, 100-seed weight, grain length, grain breadth and grain length/width ratio, while qualitative informations was observed for flag foliage angle, flag foliage form, leaf visual aspect, lodging incidence, panicle type, panicle effort, awning, awn colour and seed coat colour.
2.1.2: Datas Analysis
Datas were subjected to simple statistical analysis like mean, lower limit, upper limit, standard divergence, coefficient of fluctuation, etc. for all the quantitative traits to measure the sum of familial diverseness nowadays in the local germplasm every bit good as cultivars. Qualitative traits were categorized into different categories and frequence per centum was calculated. Simple correlativity coefficients between all braces of quantitative characters were besides calculated harmonizing to Steel and Torrie ( 1981 ) utilizing plot average values.
All recorded morphological traits were besides analyzed by numerical taxonomic techniques utilizing two complementary processs: bunch and chief constituent analyses ( Sneath and Sokal, 1973 ) . To avoid effects due to scaling differences, agencies of each character were standardized prior to bunch and chief constituent analyses utilizing Z-scores. Estimates of Euclidean distance coefficients were made for all braces of assortments. The ensuing Euclidean unsimilarity coefficient matrices were used to measure the relationships between the entries with a bunch analysis utilizing complete linkage method ( NTSys, version 2.1 ) . Chief component analysis was besides performed with the same information matrix. Scatter secret plans of first three chief constituents were produced to supply a graphical representation of the form of fluctuation among all the traditional assortments and improved cultivars, and landrace genotypes of rice ( Statistica, version 6.0 ) .

2.2: Biochemical footing of familial diverseness
Molecular rating involves the usage of molecular techniques for measuring familial diverseness of works germplasm and designation of molecular markers for harvest betterments. Healthy and mature seed of 35 commercial assortments and crude cultivars including two control assortments ( Appendix 2 ) was used for molecular analysis of entire seed protein. SDS-PAGE technique was used to place molecular diverseness of rice commercial assortments available. Different molecular degree features were studied.
Diverseness of entire seed protein of all 40 assortments and crude cultivars were checked in laboratory stage. Electrophoresis was carried out in the discontinuous Sodium Dodecylsulphate Polyacrylamide Gel Electrophoresis ( SDS-PAGE ) system of Leammli ( 1970 ) utilizing 15 % ( w/v ) dividing gel and 4.5 % ( w/v ) stacking gel ( Walter et al. , 2003 ) .
22.214.171.124: Entire Seed Protein Analysis: SDS-PAGE Electrophoresis
In Sodium Dodecylsulphate Polyacrylamide Gel Electrophoresis ( SDS-PAGE ) separations of polypeptides, migration is determined by molecular weight. Sodium Dodecylsulphate ( SDS ) is an anionic detergent that denatures proteins by wrapping the hydrophobic tail around the polypeptide anchor. For about all proteins, SDS binds at a ratio of about 1.4g SDS per gm of protein, therefore confabulating a net negative charge to the polypeptide in proportion to its length. The SDS besides disrupts H bonds, blocks hydrophobic interactions, and well unfolds the protein molecules, minimising differences in molecular signifier by extinguishing the third and secondary constructions. The proteins can be wholly unfolded when a reduction agent is employed. The SDS denatured and decreased polypeptides are flexible rods with unvarying negative charge per unit length. Therefore, because molecular weight is basically a additive map of peptide concatenation length, in screening gels the proteins separate by molecular weight.
In a discontinuous system, a non restrictive large-pore gel called a stacking gel is layered on top of a separating ( deciding ) gel. The two gel beds are each made with a different buffer, and the armored combat vehicle buffers differ from the gel buffers. In this system the protein mobility, a quantitative step of the migration rate of a charged species in an electric field, is intermediate between the mobility of the buffer ion of the same charge ( normally negative ) in the stacking gel ( taking ion ) and the mobility of buffer ion in the upper armored combat vehicle ( draging ion ) . When cataphoresis is started, the ions and the proteins begin migrating into the stacking gel. The proteins concentrate in a really thin zone, called the stack, between the taking ion and draging ion. The proteins continue to migrate in the stack until they reach the separating gel. At that point, due to a pH or an ion alteration, proteins become the trailing ion and “ unstuck ” as they separate on the gel. Denaturing gel cataphoresis can decide complex protein mixtures into 100s of sets on a gel.

When separation gel was fixed, distilled H2O was removed from its top and stacking gel solution poured on it. Combs were fixed into the stacking gel. Combs were put with particular attention and it was confirmed that there was no any air bubble at the underside of the combs. The set up was left for 15 proceedingss so that the stacking solution became gel. Combs, cartridge holders and gaskets were removed from glass home bases carefully and confirmed there was no any air bubble at this phase. Gel home bases were newly used for cataphoresis but is was besides possible that these would be wrapped in aluminium foil and could be used even for one hebdomad.
Electrophoresis process was carried out utilizing slab type SDS-PAGE theoretical account: AE-6530M, ATTA Japan, with 15 % polyacrylamide gel. The molecular weight of dissociated proteins was estimated by utilizing molecular weight criterion proteins “ MW-SDS-70 Kit ” .
Electrode buffer solution was put into the bottom pool of the setup. Gel home bases were placed in the setup, here once more air bubble formation was avoided. Electrode buffer solution was besides put into the top pool of the setup ; Wellss formed by combs were washed by syringe. Seed samples were centrifuged at 15,000 revolutions per minute for 10 proceedingss, 15 Aµl of supernatant was put into Wellss with the aid of micropipette. Protein molecular weight marker was put in first well of each glass home base. The enumeration of seed samples and Wellss were noted to avoid repeat. The setup was connected with + ( ruddy ) and – ( black ) electrodes of power supply. The electromotive force of setup was kept changeless at 100V and setup was left until a bluish line of BPB came at the underside of the gel home bases.

( Staining and De-staining of Separation gel )
When bluish line reached at the underside of the gel plates, electric supply was disconnected. Gel home bases were taken out from the setup and separated by spatula. Stacking gel was removed with the aid of same spatula. Separation gel was put in the box which contained staining solution. Box was put on the shaker for two hours. Staining solution was exchanged by destaining solution and the box was shaked gently about nightlong until the background of the gel disappeared to absorb extra CBB, a piece of Kim rub was put in the destaining solution to look into optical density.
22.214.171.124: Drying of separation Gel
Wet filter paper was placed on the home base of gel drier. Separation gel was carefully placed on the paper and covered with a wrap. It was dried in a desiccant for about 1.5 hours at 60A°C. When gel sheet was wholly dried it was taken out while the pump was still running. All gels were dried with the same mode.
126.96.36.199: Datas Analysis
Depending upon the presence or absence of polypeptide sets, similarity index was calculated for all possible braces of protein types. To avoid systematic deliberation, the strength of sets was non taken into consideration instead merely the presence of sets was taken as declarative. The mark was ‘1 ‘ for presence and ‘0 ‘ for the absence of sets. Presence and absence of sets were entered in a binary information matrix. Based on consequence of cataphoresis set spectra, Nei & A ; Li ‘s similarity matrix was calculated for all possible braces of protein type ‘s electrophoregrams by the undermentioned expression ( Sneath and Sokal, 1973 ) .
S=W/ ( A+B-W )
Where ‘W ‘ is the figure of sets of common mobility, ‘A ‘ the figure of sets in protein type A and B is the figure of sets in protein type B. The similarity matrix therefore generated was converted to a unsimilarity matrix ( Dissimilarity = 1- Similarity ) and used to build dendrogram by the un-weighed brace group method with arithmetic agencies ( Sneath and Sokal, 1973 ) . All calculations were carried out utilizing the NTSYS-pc, Version 2.1 bundle ( Rohlf 2000, Applied Biostatistics Inc. , Exeter Software, NY, and USA ) .

188.8.131.52: Plant Materials
Initially around 75 selected accessions ( Appendix 2 ) and 35 commercial assortments of rice were used as get downing stuff for molecular word picture.
184.108.40.206: Deoxyribonucleic acid Extraction from Dry Seed Samples
Entire genomic Deoxyribonucleic acid was besides extracted from dried seeds of each cultivar harmonizing to the method described by Kang et Al. ( 1998 ) with minor alterations which appears to be more utile in salvaging cost of extraction, labour and clip being used while pull outing Deoxyribonucleic acid from seedling samples:
Remove seed coat and topographic point 3-5 seeds incorporating the storage tissue in a micro extractor tubing ( 1.5ml ) .
Add 400Aµl of extraction buffer ( 200mM Tris-HCl ( pH 8.0 ) , 25mM EDTA, 200mM NaCl, 0.5 % SDS ) incorporating Proteinase K ( 50Aµg ) .
Incubate at 37oC for 1 hr. Grind seeds in the buffer with a glass rod.
Add 400Aµl of 2 % CTAB solution ( 100mM Tris-HCl ( pH 8.0 ) , 20mM EDTA ( pH 8.0 ) , 1.4M NaCl, 2 % CTAB ( w/v ) , 1 % PVP “ polyvinylpyrrolidone 40,000 ) .
Gently extract utilizing trichloromethane: isoamyl intoxicant ( 24:1 ) with 5 % phenol.
Centrifuge at 12,000rpm for 10 min at 4oC and reassign supernatant into new tubings.
Add a…” volume of Isopropanol and incubate tubings at room temperature for 10 proceedingss to precipitate DNA.
Centrifuge tubings at 12,000 revolutions per minute for 5 proceedingss and take supernatant.
Wash DNA pellet with 70 % Ethanol ( 500Aµl ) . Centrifuge at 12,000 revolutions per minute for 5 proceedingss at room temperature and pour off 70 % Ethanol.
Air dry DNA pellet for 5-10 proceedingss and re-suspend in 100Aµl of TE buffer.
Remove RNA by adding 1Aµl of RNase ( 10mg/ml ) .
After isolation of Deoxyribonucleic acid from dried seed samples, DNA concentration and pureness of each assortment and crude cultivar genotype was determined spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 260 and 280nm utilizing NanoDrop ND-1000 Spectrophotometer. The ratio between optical density at 260 and 280nm ( 260/280 ) was used to gauge DNA pureness. Deoxyribonucleic acid of each cultivar was diluted to a working concentration of 20ng/Aµl for PCR analysis.
220.127.116.11: RAPD PCR Analysis
A modified RAPD method based on Williams et Al ( 1990 ) was used with a theoretical account 9700 thermic cycler ( Applied Biosystems, USA ) . To set up RAPD protocols for rice, PCR analysis was performed by altering and look intoing the concentrations of entire genomic Deoxyribonucleic acid from 5~50ng/20Aµl reaction volume, MgCl2 from 1.5~3.0mM, dNTPs mixture from 100~400AµM each, random primer from 0.1~1.0AµM and Taq DNA polymerase from 0.2~1.25 units. After standardisation of PCR, 20Aµl reaction mixture incorporating 1x PCR buffer [ 10mM Tris HCl ( pH 8.3 ) , 50mM KCl ] , 1.5mM MgCl2, 200AµM each deoxynucleotide triphosphate ( dNTP ) , 0.4AµM of 10-mer primer ( Operon Technologies Inc. , Alameda, CA ) , 1 unit AmpliTaq Gold DNA polymerase and about 20ng of templet Deoxyribonucleic acid was found optimum for the elaboration of rice genomic DNA ( Table 2.2 ) . Taq DNA polymerase and reaction buffer were purchased from Applied Biosystems, Japan. DNA elaboration was performed in a Deoxyribonucleic acid thermic cycler ( Perkin Elmer Cetus, Norwalk, USA ) . The thermic cycler was programmed to 1 rhythm of 5 proceedingss at 94oC for initial strand separation. This was followed by 45 rhythms of 1 minute at 94oC for denaturation, 1 minute at 36oC for tempering and 2 proceedingss at 72oC for primer extension. Finally, 1 rhythm of 7 proceedingss at 72oC was used for concluding extension, followed by soaking at 40oC ( Table 2.3 ) . The duplicability of the elaboration merchandises was checked twice for each experiment.
18.104.22.168: Primer Choice
Initially, three cultivars one each from aromatic, non-aromatic and japonica type was used to optimise the RAPD protocols and choose the suited primers which exhibit polymorphisms between the three cultivars. Wholly, 40 arbitrary decamer oligonucleotides, belonging to kit OPA and OPB from Operon Technologies Inc. ( Alameda, California, USA ) , were tested as individual primers to place the most promising 1s for observing polymorphism. After an initial screen, 32 primers were finally chosen for farther usage on the footing of their ability to observe the polymorphism and bring forth the dependable and easy scorable banding forms in rice cultivars. Among them, 7 primers could non magnify the Deoxyribonucleic acid from some of the cultivars used. Therefore, eventually the information of 25 primers were used and compiled to analyze the familial diverseness and relationship among 40 commercial assortments and crude cultivars of Pakistani rice.
22.214.171.124: Electrophoresis of Amplified Products
After elaboration, 3Aµl of gel lading dye buffer ( 0.02 % Bromophenol blue, 0.02 % xylene cyanol FF, 50 % glycerin and 1 % SDS ) were added straight to the reaction tubings and spun for few seconds in a micro extractor after blending with the full reaction mixtures. Aliquots of 15Aµl of elaboration merchandises plus lading dye were so loaded in 1.5 % agarose gels for cataphoresis in 1 ten TBE ( 10mM Tris-Borate, 1mM EDTA ) buffer and run at 100V for 40 proceedingss to divide the amplified merchandises. 1kb plus was used as a molecular size weight marker. After cataphoresis, the gels were photographed under UV light utilizing black and white movie # 667 ( Polaroid, Cambridge, Mass. , USA ) .
126.96.36.199: Datas Analysis
Photograph from ethidium bromide stained agarose gels were used to hit the information for RAPD analysis. Each Deoxyribonucleic acid fragment amplified by a given primer was treated as a unit character and the RAPD fragments were scored as present ( 1 ) or absent ( 0 ) for each of the primer-cultivar combinations. Sets were scored from the top of the gel ( band figure 1 ) to the underside. The left lane of the gel was considered as lane-1. Since Deoxyribonucleic acid samples consisted of a bulk sample of DNA extracted from 5~10 seeds, a low strength for any peculiar fragment may be explained by the lesser representation of that specific sequence in the majority sample of DNA. Therefore, the strength of the sets was non taken into history and the fragments with the indistinguishable mobility were considered to be the indistinguishable fragments. Merely major sets were scored and weak sets were non considered. The molecular size of the elaboration merchandises was calculated from a criterion curve based on the known size of DNA fragments of a 1kb plus molecular size weight marker. The presence and absence of the sets was scored in a binary information matrix. Pair-wise comparings of the cultivars based on the presence or absence of alone and shared elaboration merchandises were used to bring forth similarity coefficients. Estimates of familial similarity ( F ) were calculated between all braces of the cultivars by the Dice algorithm. The Dice algorithm is indistinguishable to that of Nei and Li ( 1979 ) as follows:
Similarity ( F ) = 2Nab/ ( Na + Nb )
Where Na = the figure of scored fragments of single ‘a ‘ ,
Nb = the figure of scored fragments detected in single ‘b ‘ and
Nab = the figure of shared fragments between persons ‘a ‘ and ‘b ‘ .
The ensuing similarity coefficients were used to measure the relationships among commercial assortments and crude cultivars with a bunch analysis utilizing an un-weighted pair-group method with arithmetic norms ( UPGMA ) and so plotted in the signifier of a dendrogram. All calculations were carried out utilizing the computing machine plan NTSYS, version 2.1 ( Applied Biostatistics Inc. , USA ) .
188.8.131.52 Microsatellite or Simple Sequence Repeat ( SSR ) Analysis
Thirty five primer braces covering all 12 chromosomes were selected for the familial diverseness analysis on the footing of published rice microsatellite model map. Three primers ( RM5, RM210 and RM229 ) exhibited monomorphic fragments and were hence excluded from farther analysis. The original beginning, repetition motives, primer sequences and chromosomal places for these markers can be found in the rice genome database ( hypertext transfer protocol: //www.gramene.org ) . Microsatellite primer braces were obtained from Hokkaido Science System ( Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan ) .
SSR analysis was performed following the protocol of Ravi et Al. ( 2003 ) with minor alterations. PCR elaboration reactions were carried out in a entire volume of 20Aµl containing ; 10mM Tris HCl ( pH 8.3 ) ; 50mM KCl ; 1.5mM MgCl2 ; 200AµM each of deoxynucleotide triphosphate ( dNTP ) ; 0.2AµM of each forward and change by reversal primer ; 1 unit Taq DNA polymerase ( Fermentas Life Sciences ) ; and 20ng of templet DNA. The PCR elaborations were carried out utilizing a MyGene Series Peltier Thermal Cycler ( UniEquip GmbH, Munich, Germany ) . Thermal cycler was programmed to 1 rhythm of 5 min at 94oC as an initial hot start and strand separation measure. This was followed by 35 rhythms of 1 min at 94oC for denaturation, 1 min for tempering temperature depending on the marker used ( 55oC – 65oC ) and 2 min at 72oC for primer elongation. Finally, 1 rhythm of 7 min at 72oC was used for concluding extension. Amplified merchandises were stored at -20oC until farther usage. The duplicability of the elaboration merchandises was checked twice for each primer.
Electrophoresis of amplified merchandises: After elaboration, a 15I?l aliquot of the amplified SSR samples was combined with 3I?l of a burden buffer ( 0.4 % ( w/v ) bromo-phenol blue, 0.4 % ( w/v ) xylol cyanole and 5 milliliter of glycerin ) and was analyzed straight on 3 % ( w/v ) Gene Choice High Resolution agarose ( CLP, USA ) gels in 1xTBE buffer ( 10mM Tris-Borate, 1mM EDTA ) incorporating 0.5Aµg per milliliter of ethidium bromide. A 25bp Deoxyribonucleic acid ladder ( Biolabs, New England, UK ) was used as a size marker to compare the molecular weights of amplified merchandises. After cataphoresis, the gels were documented utilizing an UVI Doc Gel Documentation System ( UVITEC, Cambridge, UK ) .
Allele marking and informations analysis: Ethidium bromide staining of agarose gels by and large showed several sets. The size of the most intensively amplified set for each microsatellite marker was determined based on its cataphoretic mobility relative to molecular weight markers ( increases of 25bp ) . Amplified merchandises from SSR analysis were scored qualitatively for presence and absence of each marker allele-genotype combination. Each SSR set amplified by a given primer was treated as a unit character. Data was entered into a binary matrix as distinct variables, 1 for presence and 0 for absence of the character. The most enlightening primers were selected based on the extent of polymorphism. The polymorphous information content ( PIC ) value of a marker was calculated harmonizing to Anderson et Al. ( 1993 ) . Mean allele Numberss, PIC values, and familial similarities were calculated on the footing of different rice landraces, chromosomes and microsatellite categories. Pair-wise comparings of the genotypes based on the proportion of alone and shared elaboration merchandises ( allelomorphs ) were used to mensurate the familial similarity by Dice coefficients utilizing PAST ( Paleontological Statistical Software Package for Education and Data Analysis ) plan ( Hammer et al. , 2001 ) . Familial similarities ( F ) between all brace of the landraces were calculated harmonizing to Nei and Li ( 1979 ) . A dendrogram was constructed utilizing pair-group method to acquire familial relationships among landraces. The dependability of the dendogram was tested by bootstrap analyses with 10,000 reproductions to measure branch support. Some workers consider that the assurance bounds obtained in bootstrap must be over 95 % in order to see the grouping of taxa ( a group of genetically similar beings that are classified together as e.g. species, genus, or household ) at a subdivision to be statistically important ( Felsenstein, 1985 ) . Others use a lower bound ( above 50 % or at least 50 % ) as bespeaking statistical support for the topology at a node ( Highton, 1993 ) . In our survey we used the lower bounds to measure grouping of taxa to be statistically important because we observed that as the figure of trial sample increases the assurance interval lessenings.
